An Elk Grove man who was stabbed near Candlestick Park this afternoon after an argument with two suspects is expected to survive, San Francisco police said today. The victim, a 27-year-old man, was standing on Harney Way approximately 500 yards west of Jamestown Road around 1:30 p.m. with a group of five friends when the two suspects approached, according to Sgt. Michael Andraychak.
The suspects initiated a verbal altercation, then one of them stabbed the victim in the torso, causing life threatening injuries, Andraychak said. The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment. The victim and the suspects were reportedly all football fans in the area for today’s San Francisco 49ers game, Andraychak said. The suspects were arrested a few minutes later at Blanken Avenue and Executive Park Boulevard, but their identities have not yet been released.
